The Downton Abbey Cast Responded To THAT Water Bottle Photo In The Classiest Way

The cast and crew of Downton Abbey came up with the best response to their water bottle blunder....

The cast and crew of Downton Abbey had quite the ‘oops’ moment last week when a photo surfaced of Lady Edith and the Earl of Grantham posing with a plastic water bottle behind them.

As you’d expect, the historically inaccurate photo spread across the Internet like wildfire. But instead of trying to cover up the blunder with a Downton-esque stiff upper lip, the cast took the botch with a pinch of salt and decided to put all that publicity to good use with the best response ever:

A spokesperson at ITV said, ‘After seeing the reaction the picture caused earlier this week, the cast and crew came up with the idea of turning some of this attention towards an issue around water that really matters. They hope that by posing for this picture they will be able to raise awareness and amplify the work of international charity – WaterAid.’

Very well done, guys.
